Police investigate death threats against family of Vincia James


The Police are continuing to look into reports of death threats made against family members of Vincia James.

James has been missing for over four years and is presumed dead. However, last Thursday, October 7,  items belonging to her, including identification cards, were fished from a pond in the North Sound area.

A man who was out fishing reportedly reeled in a bag that belonged to the missing woman.

Her ex-boyfriend, Mikhail Gomes of Piggots, has been charged with her murder and is currently on bail.

One of James’ relatives says her son received a threatening telephone call in which he was told that family members would go missing if Gomes goes back to prison.

However, the family says they are not going to be intimidated by anyone; and they hope the Police will be able to trace the call and arrest the person who made the threat.

The call was placed from an “unknown” number, and a relative is wondering why it is taking the Police this long to trace it.  But a source tells REAL News that officers are working in earnest to trace the  call and find the perpetrator.

Meanwhile, the Police are yet to drain the pond from which James’ bag was fished.  Other sources say that a dive is being contemplated since the pond’s waters are not contained.

Our News Room could not get verification as to when these procedures might be done; but persons say this should have been done the same night to determine whether skeletal remains are in the pond.

James went missing on April 7, 2017 after leaving work at the Dixie Betting Company just after 1 p.m.

  1. That evidence scene should have been contained and protected and use whatever equipment is necessary to bring about some closure to this family, it’s a national tragedy and most or everyone is aware of this case. To the person making threats, if the Gentleman has nothing to do with the disappearance of this lady then there is nothing to worry about, a jury of his peers or a Judge will determine that. It’s that simple.

  2. Even though it is an unknown number,it can be traced. That number would show up in your recent call log and be seen if you have an iPhone. The police should be able to tract that with the Carrier getting the proper documents to do so,from the Court.
